Restoring landscapes across the Mount Alexander Region

Improve productivity


Healthy soils form the basis of farm and ecosystem productivity. Issues such as erosion, salinity, soil carbon sequestration, nutrient run-off, acidification can all be addressed through soil structure, biology and chemistry.


Native Pastures and Grazing

Native grasses can provide valuable benefits to grazing properties and are being recognised through on farm trials and research work. As perennials, they offer grazing opportunities throughout the year, are resilient and adapted to local conditions and provide comparable feed values to introduced perennials. With judicious grazing management, native grasses can provide a sustainable and productive pasture option.


Native shelterbelts not only provide habitat for native birds and beneficial insects but can provide economic benefits to farms through improved stock health and crop growth.
